New Year’s Eve Concert: Astronotes

New Year’s Eve Concert: Astronotes
AMSTERDAM  •  Bimhuis  •  Ongoing
The groundbreaking American composer and keyboard player Sun Ra was named after an Egyptian sun god and was purported to have come from Saturn. His legendary Arkestra big band combined jazz with electronica, modern classical and Arabian influences, dance and flamboyant costumes.

The ten-piece ensemble Astronotes, led by trombone player Joost Buis follows the line that runs from Duke Ellington to Sun Ra.
